The classic Hotel Alisios puts you in a great spot, just steps from the beach and only a short walk from Albufeira.
Sea views are part of the deal at this hotel. It occupies a spot on the edge of a small cliff, with a stretch of golden sand directly beneath. You can walk to Albufeira’s cobbled Old Town in less than 10 minutes.
The hotel’s doors open up to elegant interiors. The marble-floored lobby features high-backed chairs placed around vintage rugs. It’s a similar story in the rooms, where fawn-coloured fabrics are paired with dark-wood furniture.

DO NOT GO!!!
VERY POOR HOTEL: We went and had a disastrous time at the hotel. We accidentally spilt a quarter of a small glass of wine onto a bed sheet and we were treated like criminals! The receptionist said we had to pay for three(three??) new sheets plus a mattress! They wanted â¬200!! We had no problem in paying for the sheet because after all it was an accident and we were at fault...however to charge us for three sheets and a mattress was ridiculous. We were TREAT LIKE CRIMINALS and were accosted at the reception and NOBODY WAS POLITE towards us! The manager - who was VERY RUDE - came and saw us and he asked us to go and look at the sheets and then come back and talk to him. We went up with the receptionist as they had locked us out..and had a look and we agreed that the sheet had wine on it, we apologised and informed her that we would pay for it - however, the mattress had some other mark on it which wasn't from us. We duly went back down to see and speak to the manager only to find out he had gone into a meeting! We were outraged and found this to be EXTREMELY POOR SERVICE! Not only this - but there was lots of building work going on around the grounds of the hotel. This would not normally bother us at all - but due to the fact of the way we were treat - and consequently it ruined our holiday - we felt obliged to write about things. POOR HOTEL EXTREMELY POOR STAFF RUDE AND OBNOXIOUS More
Out of season experience
Comparing this family hotel to the nearby 4* chains is easy. There is no challenge. In terms of location this place is great but after that the important things such as room comfort and food quality are way below par. Our breakfast offering was poor having run out of 2/3 hot choices 20 minutes before end of service and not replenishing. If you decide to stay open during quiet times you need to make sure standards don't slip. The room offers no kettle or active minibar which would be fine in a 3* establishment but not 4*. Staff are friendly enough but bar/restaurant has lack of atmosphere which is mostly down to poor lighting. Shame professional interior decorators weren't called in. This place isn't budget so hard to see how it survives against modern standard chain hotels. Some good interior design, lighting and improved breakfast could go a long way.More
Just back from our week long holiday at the Alisios and loved the place. Firstly it is a good size of hotel, not huge and constantly busy but very quiet with excellent staff who go out of their way for you and help to ensure you have a great time. One of the gentlemen on reception even helped organise the delivery of flowers for me on my wedding anniversary! My husband had phoned the hotel and just asked if it would be possible to have flowers delivered to my room that morning, and when I returned to the room after breakfast there they were on the table in a lovely vase waiting for me with a typed out message saying they were from my husband which was lovely. The room was well appointed and spotlessly clean with maid visits every day. There was quite a selection of food offered at breakfast, both hot and cold, which was constantly topped up. Great coffee from the machine, once you worked out how to use it! The hotel is in a really good location as it is not right in the centre of Albufeira, which could be quite noisy particularly in high season, but is a 5-10 minute walk away. Lovely view of the beach and the sea from our room. Would love to go back again someday.More

Had a lovely time at the Alisios. Warm friendly welcome at reception and this continued throughout our stay...restaurant staff especially good. Rooms clean and tidy, although a little dated. It's location is fantastic...right on the beach and away from all the madness in the Old Town. We had a lovely stay so thank you very much.More
